AkkordIon is a unique duo from Kazakhstan. Two professionally trained musicians – Roman Bliznetsov (22 y.o., accordion) and Konstantin Timoshenko (33 y.o., percussive) collaborated to record this outstanding mini-album. The result is here – minimal techno (and abstract ambient) with accordion!
Deep, groovy, relaxed techno (raw and filling bass-line, sentimental and desperate harmonica melodies); abstract clicks-n-cuts, sudden blasts of accordion; noisy, but elegant sound collages, rudimental clicking beats and live industrial harmonica.

you cheap lousy bastards!
i don't listen to this sort of music that much these days. as with everything, it gets over-saturated and under simplified, but wait....this stuff turns my goose, flicks my switch and makes me wiggle. was waiting for the accordion to kick in and was in another room when i properly heard it. wonderful stuff.
still letting the other tracks grow on me but the second track is my favourite at the moment. mish mash cut up and wobble.
a most excellent minimal thing. llooking forward to hearing it whilst travelling on the underground.
